What's New in WynDashboards v7.0

WynDashboards v7.0 is now available. At the heart of this release lies our steadfast commitment to delivering cutting-edge visualization experiences. We have expanded our horizons to include new visualizations, notably enhanced Maps, 3D model visualizations, and many more visuals from ECharts library. These enrichments have emerged as a response to the resonating requests from our user community and stand as a testament to our pursuit of continuous enhancement. While Customer Support has been a guiding hand in the past, this release signifies our resolute shift toward independently addressing vital user needs, particularly in the domains of maps, 3D models, and intricate 3D charts.

Together with this, new options for customization in an embedded form have been added to the designer and viewer. We’ve also amplified animation and action-based commands, fostering interactivity that's initiated by users. This lends an entirely new layer of engagement, ensuring your dashboards are as vibrant as the insights they convey.

New 3D Model Visualization Support

WynDashboards v7.0 introduces its groundbreaking 3D Model Visualization feature.

The application of 3D model generation and visualization finds its foothold in industries like Manufacturing and Real Estate, where data is intimately intertwined with tangible structures. Imagine being able to not just view data, but to embed it seamlessly into a 3D model, offering an unprecedented level of context and insight. Picture manufacturing scenarios where machine parts are visualized within the machinery they belong to, or real estate scenarios where floor plans come alive with data-rich insights.

Facilitating this transformative experience is our newly minted 3D Scene Designer – a tool that empowers you to craft and define the semantic layers that bind data to 3D models. This intuitive environment paves the way for a seamless fusion of data and visual elements, offering a canvas where insights come alive.

Our newly introduced 3D Scene visual acts as a bridge between your datasets and your 3D scene definitions. This bridging fosters an interactive narrative where cross-filtering, drill-downs, and other user interactions breathe life into the data that's immersed in your 3D model.
